Nanoparticle technology: future opportunities in cancer treatment

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Gold nanoparticles are emerging as promising agents for cancer therapy and are being investigated as vehicles for drug delivery, agents for photothermal therapy, image contrast and radiosensitisation. This review introduces the field of nanotechnology with a focus on recent gold nanoparticle research which has led to early phase clinical trials. In particular the increasing preclinical evidence for gold nanoparticles as sensitizers with ionizing radiation in vitro and in vivo is discussed.
